Beauties on Fire Collab! Initial Post.


What Beauties on Fire is:

Beauties on Fire is a brand new collaboration with a whole lot of beauties that are fierce, fine, and fired up about all things beauty and fashion. The collaboration is a link up post (which you are free to join in on, if you’d like! Just email Elisabeth: and let her know you’d like to join) in which all the beauties in this group will post about our picked theme of the week (which will be voted on by all of our subscribers, readers, and viewers)! For example, if our readers voted on the topic of “fire,” beauty bloggers would come up with a look themed from fire and fashion bloggers would do a style themed from fire!

Here is the poll for our first theme!

Introduction: Laqing In Creativity

Tell us a little about your blog and why you decided to start blogging.

Laqing In Creativity is for the individuals who, like me, have so much imagination that they have a difficult time getting it out into the world. I have always been a creative person but as I got older, I realized it was harder for me to get my creativity out of my head and into the world, hence my blog name. It isn’t that I have no creativity or imagination, it’s just that I have a hard time getting it out. I changed the spelling of “lacking” because, well honestly “laqing” just looked so…luxurious. I also chose the spelling because I wanted people to see my brand and think “Wow, that’s pretty creative!” and I truly hope that is the message people get.

How long have you been blogging?

I have been blogging since August of 2015. I have had a few other blogs before that but honestly, there’s no need to go down that horrible, and dreadful, past. 🙂

Do you consider yourself a fashion blogger, beauty blogger, or both?

I consider myself both. I am mainly a lifestyle blog because I love to cover a lot of areas of life, not just focus on one (I honestly have tried that, even with my baking, and it’s just something I cannot do. My attention span for ONE category is just…no. It wont work). So to answer the above question, I consider myself both fashion and beauty. I am working to make better fashion choices (since I can’t yet afford my real fashion style) and learning how to dress my body type. I am also a beginner in makeup (literally started wearing and seriously applying makeup New Years day 2016) but I think I am learning pretty well so you will see more beauty than fashion for now!

List 3 things you love to do besides blogging

  • I bake. I own Shai’s Bakery and I am trying to get it into the world of success. Baking became one of my passionate hobbies in 2012 when I started making my own Chocolate Chip Cookie Recipe and received praised from family for it.
  • I read. I actually have given myself a goal of 10 books this year, I am halfway through my goal already (My current obsession is The Infernal Devices series, I am now on book 3). Reading is a great way for me to relax and immerse myself in another world, through another set of eyes.
  • I research. A lot. I want to be successful in all that I do, so I study the greats and try to become greater. I am in university for Small Business Administration (class of 2019) but I study a lot of topics on my own. I am a lover of all things space & astrology, I have a slight interest in the supernatural world, and I am always mentally acting out scenarios of too many different alternate universes, featuring myself and whatever characters from my current or favorite books I am reading.

Describe your style.

My beauty style is very calm, I would say. I love a dramatic eye, though! But I like to feel as though I don’t have on makeup. There are days when I want to be all glamorous and do big falsies, dark lip, and dramatic shadows, but most of the time (when I am not recording a look for my YouTube), I just go with a natural look, some lipstick/gloss/carmex (I live by Carmex), some eye liner (usually pencil) and mascara.

Beauty product you can’t live without.

My favorite beauty product I would have to admit is eyeliner! I just started using liquid liner literally about 2 months ago and now that I am getting pretty good with the stroke, it’s become one of my favorites! It gives such a dramatic change to the eyes without looking so overdone (if applied correctly, I have learned this the hard way! LOL). Oh, and carmex! Honestly, it’s the best thing in the world and living in a desert, like I do, you NEED some carmex.

Here are some of my favorite beauty pictures of this year!

Until next time,


  1. I am so so so so so happy this is finally starting and that you have joined!! You’re such an amazing person!! I love your blog name and loved reading about how it came to be! I totally wish we lived closer so I could try your baking!! However, that would be bad for Chubby Girls Get Skinny haha! But still…I love your setup girl!! You all are killing it with these amazing intros!! Perfection!! I love how we are all on the same page!! Your looks are killer! I love them all and I couldn’t live without eyeliner either!!

    1. Aww Beth oh my goodness!!! You’re the best! I laughed at your comment about my baking and CGGS, that would be a complete distraction lmfao! I actually made caramel brownies today, had 2 already, they’re so good!! And thank you so much! I am learning!

  2. Brie this is awesome! Your looks are so on point, I can’t believe you just started using makeup in 2016! Also, I’m with you on reading. It’s just a great way to relax and learn more about the things you already love. Your post just made me even more excited for this collab 🙂

  3. CARMEX!!!!! Lordy, I thought I was the only person who used that… well, only female! I picked up the Carmex habit from the guys in a band I ran around with, and never saw another girl with a pot of it. And yes, yes, YES on how it’s harder to get the creativity out of our heads and into the world. I totally know that! Love this post!

  4. Love the lipstick in the first photo. I used to love learning as well… but it became increasingly difficult to find time for it.

  5. I have to say that I’m excited with this collaboration but what makes me more excited is the fact that you’re a baker!!!!!!! I love pastry so so much. As long as I remember myself, I remember making sweets and stuff. I hope I’ll become a pastry chef one day.

    1. Im so happy that makes you excited!! Baking is a wonderful passionate hobby for me and its so much fun!! Expensive and sometime stressful but fun! Lol i have taught myself what i know. You can definitely teach yourself as well!! Stay positive and work on becoming what you want. I know you can do it!

  6. “Just… no” 😀 I love your writing style, and I totally agree, as much as I love any topic, sticking to JUST one is beyond hard, and as soon as you commit to it is when you get an idea for something else that’s just Screaming to come out! So glad I discovered your blog through this collab and can’t wait to read more from you!

    1. Thank you so much!!! It really is so difficult to stick to one topic, just as you said, when you commit to one topic, another one comes up and takes center attention lol

  7. I enjoyed reading this post SO much! I absolutely loved getting to know a little more about you and your blog, I can’t believe you have your own bakery that is so amazing! Definitely a very interesting read and I can’t wait to check out your YouTube channel too when I have a little more time! You’re stunning and your make-up is incredible, so much talent in one post!!!
